SLIMMING World is a launching a new event in South Normanton on Tuesday to help people shed a few pounds in the coming months.
The ‘Let’s Beat Obesity Together in South Normanton’ campaign will run for 12 weeks and encourages family, friends and community groups to work together to make South Normanton a healthier place to live.
“It’s telling that so many people in South Normanton see obesity as a national crisis,” said Diane Copley, Slimming World consultant in South Normanton.
“And it’s no surprise that so many people want to lose weight. When you’re feeling down about your size it can take over every aspect of your life, from your health and happiness to your work and relationships.
“I’m delighted that the people of South Normanton recognise the importance of family, friends and the people around us in helping us to make healthy lifestyle changes.
“It’s something we know all about in my Slimming World group as, meeting every week to share our ups and downs, our motivations and our practical tips and ideas for healthy living, we’ve all become close friends.
“We help each other through our most difficult times, build our confidence together and celebrate our successes together, like good friends do.
“Having that support from people who are close to you, who care about how you feel and who can truly understand what you’re going through gives you the strength to put yourself in control.”
During the campaign anyone who joins their local Slimming World group until 25th February and buys a 12-week countdown to take part in the challenge will get free membership worth £10 plus two weeks free worth £9.90 – a total saving of £19.90.
